PELL Grant – minimum 600 hour program required
The Federal Pell Grant Program provides need-based grants to low-income undergraduate (and certain post baccalaureate) students to promote access to post-secondary education. Pell Grants do not carry a repayment obligation. Full time courses that are 600 or more hours are eligible for Pell Grant funding. Students may not receive Federal Pell Grant funds from more than one school at a time.
Pell Grants are awarded based upon need, which is determined when students complete the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). To complete an online FAFSA application, click on this link and you will be redirected to the FAFSA website.
Students who complete the FAFSA online must enter the Medina County Career Center’s school code so the financial aid coordinators can access the results of the application.
The MCCC SCHOOL CODE is 015612.
Note: Students who have previously completed a FAFSA for the purposes of enrolling in another institution do not need to submit a new FAFSA, but must use their assigned PIN numbers to edit their FAFSA by adding MCCC’s school code 015612.
Satisfactory Academic Progress, as well as Satisfactory Attendance, must be maintained for Title IV (PELL) eligibility. MCCC defines Satisfactory Academic Progress as a 70% grade average and 90% attendance rate.
